7:00 p.m. to 8:15 p.m.
Crows possess traits that humans may find strangely familiar. They gather around their dead, recognize people, murder other crows, drink beer, sled for play, and work in tandem to get spray cheese out of a can. John Marzluff, professor of wildlife science at the University of Washington, will share funny, awe-inspiring, and poignant stories about the intelligence and unexpected abilities of crows. He is the author of the book Gifts of the Crow, and his research has been featured on the television show Nature and in the documentary A Murder of Crows. Presented in partnership with the Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory. Book sale and signing.
All sales are final unless the Museum cancels the event.
